Movie Reviews

Interesting Show - DVD Release Very Well Done
toserveman | Cincinnati, OH USA | 03/11/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I remember seeing this show as a child in the mid 1960s, but hadn't seen it since. It was great to get this DVD and revisit a fond childhood memory. The show doesn't have the panache of a CSI, or the action of 24, and is about as far from trendy as you'll get. But it has a quiet mesmerizing charm about it. When I started to play this DVD, my wife and son and I sat through over 2 episodes without hardly moving a muscle. And my son isn't usually interested in anything from the past. So this show obviously has something. It was produced with a lot of thoughtfulness, and the stories are interesting. It was produced in Canada starting in 1963, and I beleive it ran for three seasons. The first three episodes on this DVD are in color, even though they were presented in black & white when initially shown on TV. The rest of the episodes are black and white. To me, it looks better in black and white. Anyway, the DVD transfers look excellent, and the episodes appear to be complete. The color portions are a little washed out in places, but not bad. I'm sure they did the best with what they had to work with. Overall, I highly recommend this DVD. It would be great to watch with the whole family."
A Very Charming Show
Terry Cordell | John Day, OR | 11/25/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I am purchasing this DVD as a Christmas present for myself. "The
Littlest Hobo" was my childhood favorite. It was one of the
best syndicated series of the era. Sometimes the stories were so moving that I would cry during the show. Acting was always well-done and London was a loveable dog "Thanks to DVD's and digital restoration this along with many othew fine programs have been preserved. I can agree with the other reviewer mentioning how this show caught his child's attention. This is one of the programs that has a "timeles" quality to it. Whether you remember this show or not. Buy the DVD and in turn you will receive many hours of enjoyable viewing with good heartwarming stories filled with the kind of entertainment and family values that are not as
easy to find today."
Back to the 60's

(5 out of 5 stars)

"this dvd is great for anyone who grew up in the 60's. i never saw the show in the original timeslot, but i watched it every week in syndication a few years later in 1967. it brings back many fine memories to see this show again after 40 years, even though there was a newer version of the littlest hobo from 1979 - 1985. the quality is fine,except for some audio noise on the 3 color episodes, but after 40 years of absence, it is not a problem. i just hope that the original 1958 littlest hobo movie will come out on dvd too one day and that future volumes of this set will be available too."
The Littlest Hobo viewed from Downunder
Mark Norris | AUSTRALIA | 02/18/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This series played on Australian TV in the late 60S and then sometime later in the 70s and to my knowledge hasnt been to air since.What a great opportunity to watch these classics once again.
For those who are familiar to the series it will bring back memories from an era when life was a little less rushed and life was much simpler.
Would recommend this to any prospective purchaser,minimal parts of the reproduction are a little dark-possibly due the age of the originals otherwise its has been great to sit back and once again enjoy the adventures of 'The Littlest Hobo'."
